As the T-20 moves on to ind-link tracks and then painting it's time for a little light relief. Going to build the venerable Tamiya Mstilda MkIII/IV - Going for Defiance markings but with caunter scheme from AK Interactive. OOB apart from replacing the cylindrical oil drum with a flimsie carrier and flimsies

<Sigh> as usual, cant zoom in, and why do you feel the need to put the IMG title and your name next to every pic?

 

BTW, love the Tamiya 'Tilly 🙂

do you need to zoom in on the box lid 😉 and cos thats how it goes when I copy & paste off flikr and not bothering to edit ... will do better next time (and build images will allow zoom)

Very nice start Rob, I'll take a seat and watch you preform your magic if you don't mind?

course not, but "magic" is a tad optimistic.... the masking is going to be painful on this... going to build & paint the lower half then add the upper and mask the little part of track & wheels visible below the side armour

Hi Rob,

 

Great start! This seems to be a nice and straightforward build. I'm interested in how you tackle the color scheme, so I'll watch this too, if it's okay.

 

Have a nice day!

Nick

bit more shaking... loving how well this is going together (3rd tamiya and think I will get a few more (nice to have a break from "newer" companies where sometimes the instructions/fit isn't the best). Upper hull just placed for now - will add once running gear painted up I think. Blocked off the mounting holes for the rear tank as that will have a flimsie carrier and deliberately left 1 lot of the spare tracks (were these really painted in the camouflage colour as per the box art?

 

anyway, I think the end of the week will see me back on indi-tracks and then painting of the t-20 but this is such a relaxing build (pity I want to stress myself with the caunter scheme ;-))

ha... actually i don't mind indi-link (Dragon especially)- i just need music and to be in the mood. The pain with the T-20 is their size (and the fact I need to take them off the sprue. At somepoint I would love to try metal tracks but they always seem expensive....

Very nice work, can’t go wrong with those Tamiya kits. Looking forward to seeing you apply some pigments to this and how the Caunter scheme comes out.
